Looks like a great start to me!

I smoked my first butt on Sunday along with a beer butt chicken. I was very happy to have them both ready for lunch and the pork butt was fantastic! The internal temp only got up to around 175, which is good, but I have read that getting the temp to 190 will have all the fat and connecting tissue rendered out. Next time. Sadly, I neglected to take any pictures, but the 9lb butt fed everyone. We froze the half that didn't get eaten.

How was it Brendon?

What were your temps.

It looks like you could have used more wood because you dont have a very pink ring/crust.

looks yummy to me though.

my smoker was pretty good about staying at 225-230 but I did have it flair up to like 350 at one point and had a hard time getting it back down. I think I need to work out more of how much charcoal to use, how much wood and how much is too much. I got it up to 195, I had it in the smoker for 5-6 hours until I started to get a headache so I ended up wrapping it up in foil and sticking it in the oven for the last 35-40 degrees while I took a nap. I think it could have used more rub on it also it barely had any bark to it, it could also be that I finished it in the oven. I am def going to be trying it again in a few weeks
and maybe try charcoal to start and wood for the rest

Practice practice practice

Like I said before, even your mistakes will be better than anything you buy at a bbq joint!

Looks really good for a first time though
